See the tower in the distance along the Harlem River? Really doesn’t matter what it is although I’ll tell you later.  By the way, that’s the Macombs Dam Bridge in the foreground.

Here’s a closer-up shot. Notice the crows (ravens?) flying about?

Actually the tower covers pipes . . .

What really delights me though is what the tower may have inspired:  Edgar Allen Poe‘s “Annabel Lee.”  To his sensitive mind, the tower suggested a castle;  the castle a king; the king with a kingdom and of course a daughter, whom he couldn’t have.

Unrequited love . . . sounds like Alice.

Too bad Poe didn’t draw;  I’d love to see his rendering of Annabel Lee.
